Visions

Planning Committee

Planning CommitteeVolunteers have come and gone but there are certain people who have consistently been at the House of Love Soup Kitchen for the last two and a half years. These are the people who plan the week to week operations for the House of Love Soup Kitchen.

 

Director  Moncur – organizes week to week cooking and serving schedule; buys food and other supplies; sets up; cleans; serves; dishes; fundraisers; oversees bank account

Planning Committee

My vision is to see a one stop community center here on this corner of Central Ave. and S.13thstreet. I would like to see counseling offered, bible study for those who request it,  and to be able to provide shelter when needed, as well as job training . We have a lot of land and I would like to see a playground built for the neighborhood children where they can play safely and have a community center to attend

 

Pastor  Artis: solicits and picks up donations; cooks; cleans; serves; dishes; recruits volunteers; spiritual counseling

Planning Committee

I am the Pastor of the Church of God and Saints of Christ and we host the House of Love Soup Kitchen which is located on our premises. It’s a pleasure to see the involvement of the community.  My vision is one day to be able to turn this entire building over to them. The Lord promised to open the windows of heaven and he is blessing this place. We ask you to pray for us. The doors of the church are always open for prayer, and if you’re ever available on a Tuesday night come on by and help us out.

Elder Thomas-prayer before dinner; oversees sign in process; fund raising; spiritual counseling

Planning Committee

I have a big vision for where we are going next. I see us expanding in our ministry and mission.  I see us becoming enfranchised where we affect other people in other neighborhoods as well as states. Soon and very soon we will have the funds we need to pay the volunteers to help out where we need them. I’m sure God is going to bless our mission. You pray for us too.

 

 Minister Frank Phelps-Mt.Calvary Baptist Church; conducts prayer; cooks; cleans; bible study; spiritual counseling; dishes; recruits volunteers

Planning Committee

My vision is to allow God to allow us to keep inspiring our brothers and sisters. The Bible says “blessed are those that hunger and thirst after righteousness for they will be filled”.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every soup kitchen would be closed down because we are all doing better for ourselves and be in a position to help our brothers and sisters to be more independent in the Lord. 

 

Pamela Thomas-solicits clothing donations new and used; also other items such as household products, toiletrie , razors, etc.; in charge of distribution of these articles; organizes clients to assist in the distributions

Planning Committee

My vision is to see this soup kitchen opened six days a week with a full time paid staff in addition to the volunteers. We would offer summer programs including camp. During the school year there would be an after school program to help students with homework as well as incorporating the arts for enrichment. This is my short and long term vision. 

 

Dolores Harris-cooks, sets up, serves; organizes various responsibilities of volunteers; sees to the needs of clients

Planning Committee

My vision for this community project is to see us expand so that we can serve more people in the course of a week. I would like to see counseling and have different programs in the community to enjoy.

I’d like to see a beehive of activity on this corner. I would love to see a community garden where all sorts of produce could be grown. In fact we could have a storehouse where people in need could come and get fresh produce, canned goods, and other food items for their families.  It would be wonderful to be able to offer ABE/ GED courses, as well as other academic services including after school programs for the school children. A beehive of activity is my vision.
